Wow! This tent is a palace for 2-3 people in any weather. Fairly easy setup, just recommend practicing once or twice in your yard before attempting setup in inclement weather/low light. Guyouts are located extremely well and provide an ultra rigid structure when finished.
I was absolutely stunned when I first opened this baby up and saw all the luxuries this tent had to offer: 1) Multiple gear stowage in front and rear vestibules, side pockets, and loft (if purchased), including many options for a bit of personal gear. 2) Huge front tubular vestibule with rainproof window and separate vent allows for foul weather cooking- this happened to me at least twice, and I loved the chance to eat hot food without getting wet. 3) Way more venting options than anyone will ever need- this includes Eureka's hi/lo zipper use on doors, along with zippered vents in inner ceiling and side walls.
Yes, the tent is heavy, but split the weight up with your mates and you'll be the envy of the woods. I highly recommend considering this tent for a serious 4 season shelter at a price point that can't be beat.
